Default 2000 toyota corolla loud engine rattle

Toyota with 104k miles has a very loud knocking sound coming from the frontpassenger side. It is worst at idle and low speeds. 3 mechanics told me I needed a new tensioner - got the tensioner replaced, noise still there. Got the timing chain tensioner pulley replaced - noise is still there. Thecheck engine light was on as well.

Mechanic told me issue was fixed but the noise is the same. Told me I needed a new power steering pump but I can't see how that would have anything to do with this rattle.

I'd appreciate any and all ideas about what may be going on so I can be prepared when I take it to a (different) mechanic. Thank you!!
